The "Full HD - Over the Top" user group event will be held in partnership with VASST, and will be sponsored by AMD, Microsoft and Sony Creative Software. Sony will also provide details on its 64-bit Vegas Pro HD video, audio and DVD production software, scheduled to ship later this year.

"For the past eight years, our NAB user group event consistently demonstrates just how large the Vegas Pro community is growing year over year," says Dave Chaimson, VP of global marketing for Sony Creative Software. "NAB 2008 will continue that momentum as we're thrilled to add Les Stroud to the roster this year for our annual gathering. We're very eager to learn more about his valuable experiences in producing Survivorman and how he and his team approach their production challenges."

Additional confirmed speakers for the event include Hollywood producer, writer, director and actor Dean Devlin (Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla, The Patriot); aerial photographer Norman Kent; and VASST managing producer and Vegas Pro expert Douglas Spotted Eagle. AMD's Charlie Boswell, director of digital media and entertainment, will also speak about his latest projects, along with Sony Creative Software VP of technology Dave Hill.
